A departure from the dolls I normally make

Hey everybody! I was reading a book about Fairies the other night and got totally inspired to make a doll. She is in progress, no pattern, just free handing her. I love her shape so far and can't wait to dress her in something soft and pretty.
I just got her arms and legs on late last night. Hoping to make her feet and finish the face later today. Not sure about the clothes except I will not be crocheting them. I want the dress to drape her shape.
Looking at her she is quite similar to some dolls I've seen on another blog except for those are jointed and absolutely beautiful. If you want to make pretty dolls and a crocheted dollhouse you have to check it out http://byhookbyhand.blogspot.com/ Love that blog and plan on making the dollhouse myself. 

Someone on my facebook page just posted some pictures of a house they crocheted and it's really awesome. I love the details she added... check that out too!

Ok, off I go. I have been writing the pattern for my Fairy as I go so will post that when she's all done and dressed. Stay tuned and Happy Crocheting!!

A Re-Make of All the Coraline Crochet Dolls


Hey everybody! I've been watching the stats for my blog and I've noticed quite a bit of interest in the Coraline dolls. Just a note to let you know that I am planning a re-make of all 3 pictured and with that will come a more user friendly pattern for all 3. I am hoping to do this in the next couple of weeks. 
Thanks, Stay Tuned and Happy crocheting!!
